Titans receiver Rishard Matthews threatened to quit if the NFL makes it mandatory to stand for the national anthem.
Boycotting fans wonder why he doesn’t set the trend and quit before it becomes a fad.
Matthews answered a tweet that asked: “If NFL makes new rule on anthem will you still stay in locker room and face the fine/penalty?” He tweeted, “No I will be done playing football.”
Like the coward he truly is, Matthews has deleted the tweet, but Paul Kuharsky of paulkuharsky.com posted a screen shot.
Since President Trump’s Sept. 23 criticism of NFL players’ national anthem protests, Matthews has vowed to continue kneeling until the President apologizes.
In the three games since, the Titans collectively stayed in the locker room once, and Matthews stayed in the locker room until after the national anthem twice.
Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you, Mr Crybaby Liar NFL Player. You will not be missed.
An NFL fan came up with a 4 point plan for the NFL to recover from their America-hating protests.
1: Fire Roger Goodell immediately. Fans hate him, and they hate what he’s done to the NFL. He’s turned a rough and tumble sport that reveled in its necessary violence into a politically-correct, pansy shadow of its former self. Goodell has to go, and the sooner the better. Someone like Mike Ditka would be much better, but whomever it may be is going to have to be a hard-nosed son of a bitch that won’t bend to snowflake’s demands.
2: The new NFL Commissioner needs to issue a sincere apology to the fans for the protests. That is a must. We the fans deserve it for being abused by the league with this protest nonsense. We are the customer, and the customer is always right.
3: All players will stand for the national anthem, and any non-football related behavior on the field can result in banishment from the league.
4: Institute a zero-tolerance policy for felonious criminal behavior by players. Literally ZERO tolerance. Get a felony, kiss your career goodbye upon conviction.
Here’s how that could work. Any player currently in the league, just to be fair, can be grandfathered in until their contract is up. Upon completion of the contract, they are banned from playing in the league. Put clauses in the rules, and in player contracts that are very clear. ANY felonious criminal behavior, or actions that are detrimental to the league will result in voluntary termination of the player’s contract and banishment for life from the league. Any guaranteed money will be pro-rated to the point of when the felony was committed.
I believe that if these policies are strictly enforced, the NFL stands a reasonable chance, with time, to regain their fan base, and as an added bonus, no one will be calling the league the National Felons League.
Everyone wins. Fans get to watch the game they love, players are held accountable, and America doesn’t get disrespected.
